Chalmers arrived in Maryland in 1763. He practiced law in Baltimore. A staunch loyalist, he fled to England in September 1775 as American revolutionary tensions became untenable. In London, Chalmers began a literary career and engaged in pamphlet writing for the pro-Tory, anti-American position. “In 1780 he published his Annals of the Present United Colonies, in which he insisted that the American colonies had always had a subversive desire for independence and that parliament had the right to tax the colonies without their consent.” - Alexander Du Toit, DNB. Colonies covered by Chalmers include: Virginia, New-England, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine, Carolina, New York, and Pennsylvania. Sabin 11766; Howes C 266.
